Objective: During general anesthesia, if there should arise an occurrence of grown-ups and youngsters, supraglottic airway route devices are acceptable substitute to making sure about airway route than tracheal intubation. This contextual analysis focused on examination between old style laryngeal cover airway route (LMA) and present day I-gel regarding sufficient position, simplicity of addition of device, keeping up of boundaries like ETCO2 and SPO2, intra usable and postoperative confusion perspective. Study Design: Comparative Study Place and Duration of Study: This study was conducted at the Department of Anaesthesia DHQ Teaching Hospital Gujranwala Materials and Methods: There was choice of 120 patients in this randomized clinical preliminary from age went from 5 to 60 years of one or the other sex and from ASA evaluating went from I-III. These all patients were worked in recumbent situation under broad sedation. Sedation was instigated to every one of these patients in the wake of accepting premedication. Specialists that were utilized in sedation were fundamentally, inj. Succinylcholine 1.5-2mg/kg and inj. Propofol 2-3 mg/kg. Patient's airway route was made sure about with either old style LMA or I-gel in 'sniffing air" position. The device position was observed by typical chest extension, by square wave capnography, nonattendance of discernible break and SPO2 >95%. The patients were checked keeping in view the boundaries like number of endeavors, simplicity of inclusion, time used in addition, hemodynamic changes preoperatively and inconvenience included intraoperatively just as postoperatively. Results: Statistically, no critical contrast was found in patients of both the Groups regarding BP, SPO2 ETCO2 and pulse, anyway it was seen that inclusion time was more noteworthy in Groups old style LMA when contrasted with bunch I-gel. Conclusion: I-gel is viewed as better and great alterative substitution device to LMA as its inclusion is route simple, alongside negligible entanglements intraoperatively just as post operatively. Key Words: I-gel, LMA, advantages, disadvantages.
